PPDC Communiqué
28 October 2015

The Pharmacy Practitioner Development Committee (PPDC) met this month to consolidate proposed amendments and develop a consultation paper on the review of the National competency standards framework for pharmacists in Australia.

The meeting agreed to the following next steps:

  • A consultation paper on the review of the competency standards is expected to be provided to PPDC Member organisations at the end of October 2015 for a six-week consultation period.
  • Organisations will be invited to comment on the content of the revised competency standards framework and to respond to several consultation questions.
  • At the completion of the consultation period PPDC will collate and consider all feedback. A refined draft of the revised framework is anticipated to be released for consultation to the profession and other stakeholders including consumers in early 2016.
